For the Christie song, the publishers came up with a strange story set in, of all places, Scotland. It tells of a talented soccer player who was the big star in his home town of Yellow River.
   He is then signed on by a big European club and has to say goodbye to his local sweetheart. Once in Europe, he is treated to the fast life and is even courted by the niece of his new club's president.
   But he eventually comes to his senses and feels that he has to return to his hometown and his loyal girlfriend.

    Even though all his community are dressed in kilts, amazingly they all speak fluent Spanish.
